Io - Prologue

Prologue - Briar

His voice shuddered on the other end of the line. I didn't want to know.

Those words, spoken to me by the one person in the world who I thought I could truly trust. Those words, making my stomach do acrobatics. Those words, making the ache in my heart turn into utter gnawing. Everything I was - everything we were - disappearing. And there was nothing I could do to stop it. I was powerless - like trying to hold water between your fingers.

    1. Definitely! I've been most prolific with this in between trying to fix up Spectra. My man won't let me drop Spectra, so he's been helping me rework it. This is just kind of a good way to break up the monotony. :)

    2. It's a bit of a guilty pleasure sort of write, but it's plenty fun!
